  • New method of brain imaging supports gene therapy in people with Parkinson’s

    Posted by Forum Moderator on July 3, 2018 at 7:29 am

    A new method that allows imaging of all areas of the brain can help researchers monitor the success of gene therapy in the treatment of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s. Gene therapy is a therapeutic approach that has the potential, by replacing a defective gene copy with a healthy one, to be a one-time treatment that fixes, rather than treats, disease.

    In neurological diseases – such as Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease – gene therapy is often limited by the lack of an adequate imaging technique that can successfully help monitor the delivery and expression of the therapeutic gene directly into the brain.

    Have you considered any kind of gene therapies? Why or why not?
